On January 29 at 2:30 pm, we will discuss the masterpiece of John Steinbeck‘s later years, East of Eden at St. Matthew’s.

Three generations, two love triangles, one timeless story. East of Eden is an epic novel full of good and evil, love and hatred, failure and redemption. Set in the rich farmland of California’s Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families—the Trasks and the Hamiltons—whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

Save the date: On March 5 we will discuss The House Girl by Tara Conklin.
